Confucius from the Heart: Ancient Wisdom for Today's World

— feeling angel
Confucius from the Heart: Ancient Wisdom for Today's World - Yu Dan

For the last three days, I have been away to my favourite spot by the sea.

After reading “The seeker of well-being” I felt a deep inner silence that told me I needed a break; to unite with myself, to decide how best to handle the conflicts I have now, in my personal and professional lives. Now I am back to town, all renewed. Ready to face the challenges of life.

I find Confucius the best in Chinese Wisdom.

If you don't have the time to read the whole book, read at least the two chapters called "The way of Friendship" and "The way of Ambition".

They radically changed my way of looking at friendship and ambition; I've been a lot happier since. The stuff may sound like common sense, but so easy to set aside, and move on like a bulldozer.

Also, what's great about this book is: it teaches subtly, without putting us down.
